Living in Ohio during the winter can get pretty gloomy. The complete lack of sunshine for months on end really starts to get to you after a while! Because of this, it’s really best for us Ohioans to plan a trip somewhere warm during the winter, just to keep us from going completely insane. This year, after Christmas, my family decided we needed a break from the snow. So, we packed our bags and headed to Florida! We also brought along my cousin for the ride.

For those of you unfamiliar with the drive from Ohio to Florida, it’s a long one! Since we didn’t want to drive all day and all night, we stopped in Savannah, GA, where my cousin (who’s vegan) and I went to town on all the amazing plant-based food. We visited the Mellow Mushroom for some incredible vegan pizza, and in the morning, we went to the Fox and Fig, a brunch-focused vegan café. We also paid a visit to the Sentient Bean, a café with tons of vegan menu options, as well as vegan baked goods!

My cousin and I both opted for the vegan breakfast tacos, which were absolutely delicious. We also grabbed some desserts for the road: a giant chocolate Brazil nut cookie for me, and a peach pecan cobbler slice for her. And although we continued to find lots of amazing plant-based eats throughout our trip, I just couldn’t stop thinking about those amazing breakfast tacos. Obviously, I had to recreate them!

My version of vegan breakfast tacos is super easy and only takes 15 minutes to make. Plus, it’s quite high in protein! What more could you want in your morning meal?
